How to change a thermostat on a GM 3800, the fastest way

This is the way I like to change the thermostats on the 3.8 liter engines. The main difference is how I manage getting the cooling system "drained" to swap it out. It saves quite a bit of time. This applies to any GM 3.8 L / 3800 Series I II III (One, Two, or Three) 1, 2, or 3. L36, L26, L67, L32 Common vehicles with the 3800: Pontiac: Grand Prix, Bonneville, Firebird Chevy/Chevrolet: Impala, Monte Carlo, Camaro Buick: Regal, LeSabre, Park Ave, Century, Riviera, Reatta Oldsmobile: Silhouette

Filling and Bleeding the Cooling System on a GM 3.8L Series 2 V-6

In this video I'll be showing you how to fill and bleed the cooling system on a GM 3.8L V-6. The particular vehicle I'm working on in this video is a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. Note: the procedure may vary given the make, model and year of your 3.8L, so a manual will be needed. The steps to performing this procedure are as follows.... Warning! Making automotive repairs is inherently dangerous, especially when the cooling system is being worked on. Use extreme caution when working with the cooling system as personal injury could occur. Heed all warnings given in this video and in your repair manual and owners manual and warnings written on your vehicle or auto parts on your vehicle. Repair your vehicle at your own risk. Step 1: Remove the radiator cap and crack the bleeder screw. Use a thick wet rag to cover the radiator cap before removing it. Even if you think the cooling system is cool and depressurized you could be wrong. Use the wet rag and maybe a glove as added insurance. Keep your face away. Step 2: Fill the radiator. Fill the radiator until the coolant level quits falling and stays flush with the filler neck. Be patient. Once the radiator is filled place the radiator cap back onto the radiator and twist it shut. Close the bleeder valve on the thermostat housing. Step 3: Start the vehicle turn the heater on full hot and allow it to run until the lower radiator hose gets warm. Your engine temperature should be around 190 degrees F about that time. While you are waiting for things to warm up crack the bleeder screw on the thermostat housing again. This will allow any trapped air to escape the engine. Close the bleeder screw after the hose lower radiator hose gets warm and or coolant is constantly flowing out of the bleeder screw. Please note: If hose does not get warm in 5-10 minutes and or the engine temperature does not get to 190 degrees F shut the bleeder screw and shut down the engine. The cooling system may have excess air which could give a false temperature reading and cause the engine to over heat. Go to step 4. Step 4: Keep the engine shut off for 2-3 hrs and allow it to cool completely. Step 5: Open the radiator cap again. Use caution and instructions given previously. If the radiator is low then fill it and repeat steps 1-5. It may take 2-3 times of running this procedure to get all the air out of the system. Please note: It is extremely important to get all the air out of the cooling system or overheating could occur. Also, be sure that the system is free of leaks before driving the vehicle. This should be done by pressurizing the cooling system while checking for leaks. I do not have the information for that procedure as of yet, but I'm working on it. Also, I'm sure you noticed, the coolant I used is not Dex-cool. Its extended life multi-vehicle coolant. While I used this on my vehicle it is not my recommendation that you use this in your vehicle. Use only what the manufacturer of your vehicle recommends. Please note: NEVER OPEN THE COOLING SYSTEM OR TAKE THE RADIATOR CAP OFF WHEN THE VEHICLE IS HOT! Be sure the vehicle has been off for at least 2-3 hours before opening radiator cap. Here is a link to a video showing how to check for cooling system leaks using a pressure tester. https://youtu.be/ue86SVk4rGU DISCLAIMER Barbour's Auto Help is not responsible for any damage or personal injury incurred in the process of performing any auto repairs done by you the viewer.
